A Nebraska tattoo shop owner has given away thousands of dollars worth of free services in exchange for clothing that he can give to the homeless.
Mark Hennant, who is the owner of the Ink Link Tattoo shop in Nebraska, first started asking for donations over one month ago. Initially, the shop was offering free tattoo certificates in exchange for donated gloves, warm hats, winter coats, boots, and new socks and underwear.
Needless to say, the donations started pouring in. In fact, the shop received so many donations, they were forced to downsize their offer to certificates that were only worth 50% off of their tattoos followed by simply offering $20 worth of store credit for every item of important winter clothing.
To Hennant’s delight, however, the donations have kept coming, resulting in thousands of articles of clothing – and he says he doesn’t plan on stopping his mission anytime soon.
“It does feel good to help people, but it also just makes you realize, you know, how much people need,” Hinnant told KETV, adding that he would “keep it going, you know, because the winter is a long way from over.”
